Yard By YardRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Blade to blade I always win,
My foe laid low and even.
Yard by yard through thick and thin,
I'm busiest in season.
HintPushed and pulled I stay the course,
My power is measured by the horse.
AnswerA lawn mower.
Explanation: It cuts blades of grass with its blade, leaving them low and even. It is used in home yards and is busiest in summer when grass grows fastest.
You push and pull when cutting and generally stay in a straight course, and your lawn mower engine has a horsepower rating (like 3.5 horsepower).
Hope it was enjoyed more than mowing the yard!
